I do not usually read diet and nutrition books...when I do have time to read, honestly that is not the type of book that I like to pick up...this one has been different. I was asked to read this book so that I could review it on this blog. I received a free copy and it is that time of year where everyone finds themselves thinking about change and what they would like to be different in the new year. For our family, making healthy choices is priority in 2009...so I picked up the book and from the first page I was fascinated! Her life story is amazing and definitely inspiring!
After years of failed diet attempts, Chantel Hobbs discovered the missing ingredient to permanent weight loss: to change your life, you first have to change the way you think.
Here are a few quotes that jumped off of the page and resonated with me,
"We gain weight through a series of poor choices made on a
regular basis over a long period of time."
"The pain of regret is far worse than the
pain of discipline."
"I succeeded because I finally
committed to regularly doing things
that made me uncomfortable and
I did them long enough that I
became comfortable doing them."
She developed a balanced plan for exercise and nutrition and lost two hundred pounds. (think about that!!!)
Now, through writing, speaking, and her work as a personal trainer, she inspires others to achieve far more than they thought possible.
In Never Say Diet, now available in trade paperback, Chantel provides everything readers need to lose weight for good, including:
*Simple, step-by-step workout routines that fit into a normal weekday schedule
*A realistic approach to nutrition that helps people break their bondage to food
*Strategies for staying motivated when life takes unexpected turns
*Keys to dealing with discouragement by relying on God’s strength
*The secret to moving beyond past failures and getting over old excuses
Chantel helps readers make the five commitments that are necessary for changing their lives.
I would love to tell you those five commitments you need to make but then you might not get the book...if your serious about making a life change, getting healthy, and living life with energy and purpose, read this book and DO IT!!! This is certainly my personal plan!
Her high-energy, no-nonsense approach inspires readers to achieve results that last in body, mind, and spirit.
Her newest book, The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Coach, now allows readers to have Chantel show up each week to inspire, encourage, and energize them on the journey to a healthy life that centers on body, mind, and spirit.
This fitness guide helps readers set new weight-loss goals and create an exercise schedule that works in the midst of life’s constant demands. Readers will be inspired with Scripture, and they will welcome Chantel’s healthy eating plan with simple, energy-and-nutrition-packed recipes.
Weekly checklists and personal evaluations direct readers in reaching their goals. Plus, Chantel’s personal and entertaining stories provide the motivation needed to get through even the most frustrating days. With Never Say Diet and The Never Say Diet Personal Fitness Coach readers will establish new fitness habits that burn off excess weight, increase strength, and establish a new, healthy way of living.
